Anyone else unable to use the Mac address randomization features on the xz3? The option is supposedly added to Android pie but I think maybe Sony pulled it from this ROM? It should be listed either in the UI somewhere or Dev options beneath networking.
I am running the 52.0.A.3.84 release that dropped today. PIXEL devices have this for sure in Dev tools but that is just missing on this device.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can anyone point me in the direction of the a feature enhancement request form? Would I needed to contact support directly to get this feature considered, as it should be implemented in pie releases.

On Pixel you can randomise, not on Xperia.
Some thoughts why it maybe isn't activated in Xperia.

Please don't give excuse to Sony for lazy implementation.
MAC address randomization is essential for privacy. It should be a a toggle option and on by default.
You should be able to set per SSID settings for randomization for both WiFi and bluetooth.
There is absolutely no problem with this behaviour, just give the choice to the user FFS.

No, it isn't there and it will not be there.
Unless you have rooted your device.
Simple as that.
It's Android, not Sony, not Huawei, not Nokia.
Besides, you won't need MAC address spoofing unless you're involved in ultra secret affairs.
